"It's user friendly, much better than most tools I have seen."
"The Camunda BPMN Platform is very flexible and gives several options to deploy and scale it."
"It is simple to use. The user experience is very good."
"I can use any other tools to create services and the UI, and then use them together with the Camunda BPMN engine."
"Easy to use and easy to integrate into the products and applications we provide for our customers."
"It is open-source. It supports microservice orchestration. This is what we are really interested in. We can customize our products depending on the use cases."
"Camunda Platform has a very good interface for workflow and business process design."
"The most valuable feature is the scheduling."
"The most valuable features of this solution are that it's no code, it's very flexible, and it's easy to design."
"The workflow engine of K2 is its main strength. Its workflow engine is probably one of the best, and that's the reason why Nintex bought K2. It can clearly handle any complex process or scenario. K2 is almost low-code. It is a no-code or low-code solution. You don't have to read a whole lot of code. It is pretty much GUI based. Their support is also excellent. The biggest advantage of K2 is SmartObjects, which allow you to separate the data from the application. It is a standalone application that allows you to build a data source from different places, which a lot of other applications also do. It is called SmartObjects technology, which is pretty powerful. If I have data from different applications, such as JD and ServiceNow, I can just create a SmartObject based on a data source and use it. I have some forms that have six, seven, or eight applications in a single form with data from different places."
"The integration capabilities have been very useful."
"Documentation can be improved."
"Would be helpful if there were additional out-of-the-box activities."
"I would like to see better pricing."
"The user interface needs some polishing because it is too technical for end-users to use it."
"There are a few things that I'm missing. For instance, the user interface creator, which I know other systems have, like Aurea or Lombardi, which are IBM solutions. The interface creator, including the data model creator or some module which would allow the users who are not programmers or business consultants and who are not technically skilled in database and Java programming, to create data models and user interfaces."
"The business model could be easier to understand."
"I have faced problems in bringing up the Cockpit in terms of GUI processes. I think that there is room for improvement in those areas."
"It lacks some preset features and configurations which would make it more plug-and-play for customers."
"The Workflow Designer needs improvement."
"Currently, it's taking quite some time to deploy a package, it needs improvement"
"K2 is a workflow solution, and there is no RPA solution with K2. This is where K2 lacks a little bit. It is just a heavy workflow solution. It doesn't have a supplemental product like RPA. If you want to use RPA, you have to use Blue Prism, UIPath, or something else. If you use Nintex, it has an RPA solution. It is a form-based application, and they are doing everything electronically. The initial investment in K2 is heavy because it is a BPM software. It does not have a low cost because they charge you the same for one workflow or 100 workflows."
